Hey, just back from a trip to England and Spain and now I need to do some shopping to fill some cravings. In particular, I need:
1. Lots of British foodstuffs, in particular, Branston pickle. We flew BA and their thin well-composed sandwiches really inspired me, believe it or not.
2. A good Spanish market. We brought home plenty of stuff but that will run out, and of course some things are a no-no with customs. I'd love to find a really great well-aged Manchego, for example.
3. A source for good anchovies. Maybe Diana's has, or one of the better Portuguese fishmongers? We ate anchovies almost every day in Spain, and I am craving the simple plate of anchovies doused in red wine vinegar and sliced red onion...with some nice bread, man so good. Keep in mind these should be salted/preserved, but big and good enough to stand on their own, ie. the jar of little Italian fishies I have from Costco won't cut it.
